2016 Chardonnay, Edna Valley

(27% new French oak) Light yellow. Aromas of ripe peach, poached pear and honey, along with subtle floral and oak spice notes. Smooth and broad on the palate, offering gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors that pick up a vanilla accent on the back half. Closes on a smoky note, displaying repeating spiciness and clinging pear character.

2016 Chardonnay, Edna Valley

Salted apple and white peach aromas meet with a lemony edge, hint of toast and flash of sandalwood on the nose of this bottling. There is strong energy to the sip, where tangy waves of lemon candy meet with warmer flavors of pan-seared apple.
